David Bowie, 69, died on January 10. And while we remember his fantastic music, fashion sense, and all in all space oddities, we also are reminded of his essential reading list.
This 1929 novel is on his To Read List, and is considered one of the most important pieces of literature of the Weimar Republic (then Germany). The novel revolves around protaganist Alexanderplatz, an ex-convict who circles life in misery, poverty, crime, lack of opportunities and the imminent loom of Nazisim in the 20s. It's a stark portrayal of Germany at that time and one that will make you recognise the harshness of life.
Berlin Alexanderplatz, Alfred Döblin

Muhammad Ali, 74, died on June 3. And the silver-tongued boxer was more than an award-winning sportsman - the civil rights champion and devout Muslim spent a life not confined to the boxing ring.

Harper Lee, 89, died on February 19. And her child's-eye view of racial injustice in a small Southern town in "To Kill a Mockingbird" became standard reading for millions.
The elusive author was always relevant, and when she published the followup, "Go Set a Watchman", she definitely cemented herself as one of the most prolific authors crossing from the 20th to the 21st century.
Go Set a Watchman, Harper Lee
